Installing latest version of crust
I installed the latest version of crust , by doing the following on my Mac:

This was using the Mobian stable and Mobian Nightly build:

used a docker Debian image, latest
make sure git/build-essential/cross compiler is installed

Downloaded the following and placed in /opt folder

git clone

edit the Makefile
update cross compiler folders
update board to say pine phone

(makes images)

grabbed the following afterwards:


copied this file to Mac book host file

booted up with jump drive on my sdcard

now I can see all drives

unmount all drives

bash-3.2# gpt -r show disk3
     start      size  index  contents
         0         1         MBR
         1      1952         
      1953    248048      1  MBR part 131
    250001   7171874     2  MBR part 131  MBR part 131
   7421875  23363661   

See (1 1952) is not assigned, but 1
and 2 are so I zeroed out 1 - 1952 just in case left overs (This is where uboot resides be careful your deleting boot now)

bash-3.2# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/disk3 bs=512 seek=1 cou
sync && sync && syncnt=1952
then I did the following:
bash-3.2# dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/disk3 bs=1024 seek=8
the above can be found at SUNXI sites=
sync && sync && sync
1024 seek=8
Try at your own risk but it worked for me
